Players earn points at Regionals. Regional tournaments must have a minimum of 8 teams per gender to qualify as point-earning. Points are weighted based on the size of the regional tournament and the number of participating schools. For example, tournaments consisting of players from multiple schools will be awarded more points than a tournament consisting of players from just one school.
NCSVA National Championships
The NCSVA National Championships take place alongside the Asics World Series of Beach Volleyball—an FIVB Grand Slam on American soil. In addition to playing at the same venue as the world’s top professionals, NCSVA participants can take in the 6-person and 4-person tournaments, youth championships and several A-list musical performances. The entire event is broadcast on NBC’s network of television and online channels totaling over 20 hours of coverage.
